Cholsey 8th May

Sunny spells, Showers, 10º, a little milder than of late, light SSW.

A quick stop off at Lollingdon Hill on my way home to find a single female Wheatear on the Hill (TW had a male “Greenland” Wheatear yesterday), a Hobby flew over the hill and 20 Swallows flew north.

Another Hobby see over the village later in the day.

TW had visited the Marsh this morning and had a Hobby and a Cuckoo in the area, worth keeping an eye out for waders, as some of the fields adjoining the Thames are flooded!

Swallows, Swifts and House Martins over the village.

Brimstone, Peacock and Speckled Wood butterfies.

  1. Hundreds of hirundines and swifts buzzing over the sewage works again, in a very tight melee (only a handful over the surrounding fields). Also Cuckoo heard distantly. RB
